From Library Journal: At first glance, this subject appears extraordinarily dry, but Holzer, an expert in the area of Lincoln iconography and editor of The Lincoln-Douglas Debates ( LJ 2/15/93), has labored to provide a "human face" to the material. Spanning the period from 1775 to 1882, the prints discussed document the "metamorphosis of Washington and Lincoln from products of our history to products of our imagination." Included are images of Washington as portrayed during his lifetime and deified after death; Lincoln as a flesh-and-blood frontier politician, the Great Emancipator, and the Martyr of Liberty; and "Columbia's Noblest Sons," portraying the two leaders together. Political cartoons and photographic portraits also number among the 143 illustrations. Annotated footnotes serve in place of a bibliography. Recommended for academic collections serving a well-informed audience with a particular interest in American political history and print collecting.
